Sliced Watermelon Jell-O Shots

Learn how to make delicious Jell-O shooters that look just like watermelon slices including the seeds!


5 limes
1 (3 ounce) package watermelon flavored gelatin mix
1 cup boiling water
1 cup vodka
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds, or as needed


1. Slice limes in half crossfire, juice the limes, serving juice for another use, and turn the rinds inside out. Scrape membranes and flesh from lime halves and turn peels back to form small cups with the green rind on the outsides. Place halves in a small dish, edges touching, to keep cups standing and upright. 

2. Stir watermelon gelatin mix with boiling water in a bowl, mixing until gelatin is completely dissolved. Let cool to room temperature and stir vodka into gelatin. Pour gelatin mixture into lime peel cups. Refrigerate until set, 2 to 4 hours. 

3. Use a sharp knife to cut each lime cup wedges. Sprinkle wedges with black sesame seeds.

Kite Patch: A Sticker that Makes People Invisible to Mosquitos

Kite, mosquitoes patch is a small, powerful patch that allows humans to go virtually undetected by mosquitoes for up to 48 hours. 
Kite mosquito patch is the world's first product containing breakthrough scientific discovery of non-toxic compounds proven to disrupt the mosquito's ability to track humans using safe, non-toxic compounds.

Kite's compounds act as a non-tropical, spatial repellent, blocking mosquitoes' ability to detect carbon dioxide-their primary method of tracking human blood meals.

Kite was built to protect humans in a small, lightweight, durable, and effective patch, in a wide range of conditions in which humans find themselves in contact with mosquitoes. 

Help Kit build their firs run of Kite Patches, test in Uganda, and then optimize it for products for global distribution. Their U.S backers will be the first to receive Kite Patches after they gain U.S EPA approval.
